Nafplio is a romantic city that enjoys a waterfront location overlooking the Argolic Gulf in the eastern Peloponnese of Greece. It serves as a convenient base to explore the numerous archeological sites, historic buildings, and industrial-style recreational spaces in the region. Owing to its strategic position, Nafplio was the first capital of modern Greece, with three imposing castles and fortresses across town speak to its medieval history. Out of these, the Palamidi Fortress offers panoramic vistas of Nafplio, the oldest of the castles, Akronaflia, boasts Bronze Age gates and once held the entire city within its walls, while Bourtzi on an islet is illuminated every night. In the atmospheric Old Town, Venetian architecture, neoclassical buildings, and Ottoman fountains charm visitors navigating the narrow cobblestone streets. The unique Kombloi Museum offers an insight into Greece’s favorite pastime of using amber worry beads! Visit the small sandy beaches and fishermen tavernas dotted along the coast to soak in the summer vibe. Also visit the marble-paved Syntagma Square that houses an impressive museum, and enjoy a sunset stroll along the Arvanitia Promenade like locals do.

Highlights

  • Old Town
  • Palamidi Castle
